          Very nice Ben, it dosen't seem like it will take too much to bring it back.
          Was it really that cold in the garage, comrade?

            Cheers, everything seems is in place (Just).
            Still trying to shake this cold, so was layering up last night, worst bit is I can't taste anything still, beer tastes like water
            Now just need some energy to strip it down.

                  Finally shaking this cold and decided to make a start on PinBot.

                  As you can the see in the last photo the displays are not working, they would work faintly on startup then gradually fade to nothing.
                  Was hoping this was a power supply problem as display glasses are pricey!. Quick look on the pin repair guide put me straight to the R1 and R4 resistors on the PS, sure enough one resistor had been piggy backed, and the other tested low.
                  Had a look through my components and had a couple of 39Kohm 1 watt resistors , don't even have to leave the house now.
                  Pulled out the PS board and replaced the 2 Resistors.
                  I have displays now,bright and no missing segments, except the 4 digit display (Credit / Ball in play) does not work at all. Not sure where to go with this part, I suspected it has outgassed. Is there anyway to test



                  Would it be possible to plug the 4 digit display in into either 3 or 4 player 7 digit display (same connection I think) to test if its the display?

                    Started stripping the PF tonight. Hated playing it (all of 4 games ) in poor condition , missing rubbers etc .
                    All the switches, solenoids etc seemed to test OK, so time to get the PF running smoothly
                    One big plastic tub, lots of little plastic bags, a screwdriver and socket set and went to it.

                    Visor cover removed.



                    Left hand middle, lots of Star posts in this game and various different metal posts



                    Under the Bride, a bit of wear close to the Pop bumpers. (one Pop Bumper would not even press down, manually (top one))



                    Large Blue Ramp Removed



                    Lift Ramp, so far the PF looks pretty good, especially IF the mylar lifts well



                    Under the Vortex ramp, a bit of wear here, shouldn't be hard to touch up.



                    The Eye locks, more slight wear. Looks like the person who put the PF Mylar on, did the sections they could reach without removing anything .




                    Top part, you can see the mylar bubbling around the inserts, hopefully it will just fly off overnight.


                    Bottom part, and even more prominent here especially around the Sun.
                    Also you can notice the Special and 4x insert lifting



                    Finished the rest of the PF posts as well, so its basically stripped. Just have to remove the Pop bumpers and Flippers. Hopefully will get a start on the Mylar strip tomorrow.
                    Overall its in pretty good condition two inserts have lifted but haven't caused in damage. Most of the wear is in hidden areas, but will give it a go touching it up nothing to lose.
                    The BG is Excellent doesn't seem to be a mark on it

                    Battery went flat in the camera so will post some more pics tomorrow.

                    Can't wait to get the grime off, and then the mylar.
